State E-911 Coordinator Reviews Jackson County’s Upgraded 911 System

By: Sid Riley

On Tuesday Mr. Wink Infinger, State E911 Coordinator, his technical specialist Mr. Akram McKee, and Christine Daniels, the Jackson County E911 Coordinator toured the Jackson County Sheriff’s facility and the Marianna Police Department facility. They were reviewing the new, updated systems that have been installed here. These systems will enable faster, easier identification of locations and will facilitate response activities.
These include the Viper power 911 Map and MIS System which is the newest technology in this field. The previous system a Lifeline Power 911 Map and MIS System was relocated to the Marianna Police Department when the new system was installed last November at the Sheriff’s Department. This creates a dual system thus providing for back up coverage if the primary system ever fails. It also removes the requirement for transfer of information to the Marianna Police for calls within the Marianna jurisdiction.
Christine Daniels, Jackson County 911 Coordinator brags, "Jackson County’s E911 System is among the best".
